Resource Centre

There is a resource centre at the Guardian Centre which offers you the opportunity to look at and try out some of the equipment which you may find useful. Equipment is available to buy. There are also some items which are available on short term loan so that you are able to try out more expensive items in your own home before you decide to buy. If you would like to come in and have a look around, or are interested in a particular piece of equipment, please phone MertonVision for an appointment on 020 8540 5446.
